Sevagram Ashram, Sevagram


The Sevagram Ashram is the reason behind the destination of Sevagram being renowned – the place where Gandhiji resided for a period of thirteen years from 1936 to 1948.

It is believed that when Gandhiji commenced his Pad Yatra from the Sabarmati Ashram in 1930 to Dandi he has vowed to not step foot in Sabarmati before India attained independence. India did not gain independence then and he was instead imprisoned.

Upon his release Gandhiji decided to reside in Sevagram. That’s how the institution was set.

The ashram has many components to it. The Adi Nivas and prayer ground, the Ba Kuti, the Bapu Kuti and the Akhri Nivas were one of the many rooms that were used by Gandhiji and his wife Kasturba. Other rooms included Bapu’s kitchen, Adya Adi Nivas, Parchure Kuti, Mahadev Kuti, Kishore Nivas, Rustam Bhavan and the Yatri Nivas.

The Yatri Nivas was especially built as a visitor’s residence in 1982 by the government for the sake of the visitors.
